Chloe Writes: "Transfixed and Mute"

I stand transfixed and mute
My heart drops from my chest, gone
Now everything is gone
Everything is desolation

I walk through a display
Of broken bodies and finally, a face I find familiar
Searching becomes obsolete
I stand transfixed and mute

People scream around me but
I do not hear them
Dust and rubble fall, I do not feel it
My heart drops from my chest, gone

In a previous moment there was such laughter
Joy and love and hopes and dreams
A future with a familiar face
Now everything is gone

The world is asleep, still innocent
The sun here has gone down by the lighting a single flame
I remain trapped in my nightmares where
Everything is desolation
